The Foote Clinic is significant primarily under Criterion B: Person for its direct association with the prominent Hastings physician Dr. Eugene Foote, and under Criterion A: Health/Medicine as a major center for medical services in Hastings. The building hosted not only Dr. Foote's eye, ear, nose and throat practice but those of other physicians as well. The structure's most active period began in 1924, the year it was built until 1968, when Dr. Foote began to retire from active practice. As the period of significance extends to 1968, the building must meet Criteria Consideration G. Dr. Foote was an exceptionally significant individual in the history of Hastings, where he made an indelible mark on the community as a medical pioneer and practitioner. His clinic was the first to provide a form of integrated care consisting of multiple specialists outside of a hospital. The proposed period of significance, 1924-1968, encompasses the entirety of Dr. Foote's productive life at the clinic. Within the confines of this building, Dr. Eugene C. Foote, his sons and grandsons offered state of the art medical and surgical procedures to the people of south-central Nebraska and a sizable portion of northern Kansas.
